*** Will you be available to help collect on 15 May for WellMe? ***
WellMe is collecting on Friday 15 May in Central Wellington and may be collecting on other days during the week to help raise awareness for ME/CFS and to help us continue the amazing work we are doing for people with ME/CFS in the Wellington Region.
YOUR help is so needed! If you can help, please ring Jen on 0800 632 847 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those who are not familiar with the history of May 12th International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day, it was started in 1992 by Tom Hennessy to promote awareness of chronic neuro-immune diseases, including ME/CFS, FM, MCS and GWI.
Tom chose May 12th as ME/CFS Awareness Day to commemorate the life of Florence Nightingale, who suffered from an illness much like ME/CFS (probably brucellosis) — May 12th is her birthday.
